Current Status and Future of Computer Modeling, Simulation, and Games (MS&G)

Mike McGinnis, Ph.D.
Executive Director
Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center

Abstract

The research and development of computer models, simulations and games has evolved over the past several decades into an industry and academic discipline that are critical to the Nation's continued leadership in mathematics, science and engineering.  Dr. McGinnis will discuss the current state of computer modeling, simulations and games (MS&G), the economic impact of the industry in the Hampton Roads region, and future challenges and growth areas for MS&G research and development.

Bio. of Dr. McGinnis

Mike McGinnis joined Old Dominion University on 10 June 2006 as the Executive Director of the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center (VMASC). Prior to assuming this position Brigadier General (Ret) McGinnis served for seven years as Professor and Department Head of the Systems Engineering Department, United States Military Academy, West Point, New York.

Mike’s previous Army modeling, simulation and analysis assignments include Director of the U.S. Army Unit Manning Task Force, Director of the U.S. Army TRADOC Analysis Center at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, and Director of the U.S. Military Academy Operations Research Center.

He has served on key government engineering, modeling, simulation and analysis committees to bring about change at the Army and Department of Defense levels. These include the National Academy of Sciences Committee on Defense Modeling, Simulation and Analysis, the Undersecretary of Defense for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology Systems Engineering Forum, the U.S. Army OneSAF Architecture Working Group, Senior Reviewer for the Army Standards Nomination and Approval Process for Semi-Automated Forces, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Modeling and Simulation Committee, and the Deputy Undersecretary of the Army for Operations Research and Systems Analysis (ORSA) Advisory Committee.

Doctor McGinnis is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and has Masters of Science degrees in Applied Mathematics and Operations Research from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a Ph.D. from the University of Arizona in Systems and Industrial Engineering. He attended the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth and the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island where he earned a Masters of Arts in National Security and Strategic Studies.

Mike’s professional and scholarly body of work includes three national awards and over 40 published and peer-reviewed papers published during 17 years of working in the fields of systems engineering and operations research domains. Reflecting his contributions to military operations research, Mike has been a regular member of U.S. delegations to foreign nations as part of the Deputy Undersecretary of the Army for Operations. Doctor McGinnis has been honored with the 1995 Military Operations Research Society Rist Prize, the 2004 Military Operations Research Society Barchi Prize, and the ‘best paper’ for the 2005 Interservice/ Industry Training, Simulation & Education Conference (I/ITSEC) Research and Development Track. He was inducted into Who’s Who in Engineering Education in 2005.

   Modeling, Simulation and Parallel Computation: The Future is Now

Richard M. Fujimoto
Computational Science & Engineering Division
Georgia Institute of Technology

Abstract

The computing industry has reached an inflection point. Exponential clock speed improvements that have driven computer system performance advances over the last several decades have reached a plateau due to power consumption and heat dissipation constraints. While Moore's Law, which predicts exponentially increasing microelectronic circuit density over time, is expected to continue into the next decade, it is clear that further hardware performance increases will result primarily from multi-core circuits that rely on parallel processing rather than improved clock rates. It is clear that successful exploitation of parallel processing will be critical to achieve sustained growth in computation power in the years ahead. While advanced technologies such as quantum computing offer great long term potential, widespread deployment of such technologies is many years away, and parallel processing will likely remain an important concern even after such new technologies become commercially viable.

These developments will have a profound impact on the modeling and simulation industry. The industry has long relied upon increased computer performance to be able to keep pace with the need to model systems of continually increasing complexity and scale. While the need to simulate larger, more complex systems will continue into the foreseeable future, our ability to simulate such systems with sequential software will be diminishing in the years ahead. Long a "nice to have" capability, parallel simulation will increasingly become a "must have." However, many major hurdles remain before parallel execution can become widely exploited. Development of scalable parallel simulation software, easy to use synchronization techniques, effective load balancing and resource allocation approaches, automated fault tolerance, and time shared use of computing platforms each by itself presents a formidable challenge, yet must all become straightforward or automatic if widespread adoption of parallel simulation methods is to be successful. I will describe some of these challenges and speculate on potential solution approaches that might be deployed to addressing this growing dilemma.

Biography

Dr. Richard Fujimoto is Professor and Chair of the Computational Science and Engineering Division in the College of Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He received the Ph.D. degree from the University of California at Berkeley in 1983 in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering as well as an M.S. degree from UC-Berkeley in 1980, and B.S. degrees from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in 1977 and 1978 in Computer Science and Computer Engineering. He has been an active researcher in the parallel and distributed simulation community since 1985, and has published numerous technical papers and three books on this topic and parallel computation. He led the development of parallel/distributed simulation software systems including the Georgia Tech Time Warp (GTW) simulation executive and the Federated Simulation Development Kit (FDK), both of which have been distributed worldwide. Fujimoto led the working group that defined the time management services for the High Level Architecture (HLA).

Keynote Panel
Monday 1:30pm - 3:00 pm

bullet Dr. C. Michael Overstreet (Associate Professor of Computer Science, Old Dominion University, Virginia, USA) explores a technique for gaining inside models: formal analysis of model specifications. Although insights may come from various activities (e.g., observing behaviors exhibited by the model, analysis of data produced by the model, or experimenting with the model by using different data or changing the model structure), the presented approach can complement those commonly used approaches by revealing interesting model properties that would otherwise not be recognized.
bullet Dr. Frank G. Smith, III (Savannah River National Laboratory, USA) presents a brief history of dynamic modeling in the chemical process industry and discusses its status today. One factor significantly complicating dynamic chemical process modeling is the need to evaluate physical properties during the calculation. Several examples from experience with dynamic process modeling at the Savannah River National Laboratory will be used to illustrate current modeling techniques. Finally, there will be a brief discussion of future trends in dynamic process modeling.
